No Place Like It

Stampin' Up! Home Life bundle with Welcome Home framelits and Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon

I just realized that I never posted my Step-It-Up Challenge for the Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew this month! The card above is the clean-and-simple version of my card. It’s much easier than it looks! The house is stamped with three different stamps that fit together perfectly.

Stampin' Up! Home Life bundle with Welcome Home framelits and Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon

After stamping the house, I simply tied a ribbon around the card front with the Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon and added some Iridescent Sequins and Metallics Sequins. Boom, done.

Stampin' Up! Home Life bundle with Welcome Home framelits and Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon & Basics Pack 2 washi tape

For the stepped-up version of the card, I included washi tape from Basics Pack 2 and a heart from the Hearts & Stars Elements. I also stamped the Real Red stamp on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating die (there is a die that cuts out all these flowers in one shot!). I popped those flowers up on Dimensionals.

Instead of tying the ribbon around the cardfront, I added a little bow to the heart.

Stampin' Up! Home Life bundle and Pretty Label Punch

I wanted to stamp “No place like it” on the inside of the card. We had just gotten back from two weekends away in three weeks when I made this card, so it seemed appropriate for our Vacation/Staycation theme. All I had in my head right then was staying home for a bit. But I didn’t think the Labeler Alphabet stamps worked with the front of the card, so I used my Real Red marker to write the inside sentiment. Then I added two flowers (leftover from the die cut for the popped-up flowers on the card front). The sentiment is written on a label punched with the Pretty Label punch (because I had a big smudge to cover).

If you’d like to see this bundle in action, check out this video I made a few weeks ago with this bundle.

You can buy all of the products I used in my cards in my online Stampin’ Up! store.

Baby Quilt

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt bundle with Quilt Builder framelits and Quilt Top Embossing folder, Lemon-Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequin Trim - handmade baby card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I have a sweet baby card for you today! This is another Holiday Catalog sneak peek. It’s the Quilted Christmas suite, and it was the first thing on my preorder list. As you can see, it’s not just for Christmas. I think this is one of the most versatile things in the Holiday Catalog.

 

I made my card using the colors from Fab Friday and the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch (I flipped the sketch upside down).

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt bundle with Quilt Builder framelits and Quilt Top Embossing folder, Lemon-Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequin Trim - handmade baby card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I stamped the outline of the quilted piece in Melon Mambo, then the inner pieces in Lemon-Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo. Then I cut it out with both the outline die and the die that cuts the stitching. I cut out the overlaid Melon Mambo piece with another die. There are so many coordinating dies in this set.

I embossed the Whisper White piece with the new Quilt Top embossing folder. I had a hard time deciding whether to use the embossed side or the debossed side, because they both look so great!

Stampin' Up! punch tip - Punch twice to punch a different, smaller shape - Everyday Label punch - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I used Moon Baby for the sentiment, with the new Everyday Label punch from the Holiday Catalog. I punched the sentiment out twice, as shown. I love how you can get multiple shapes from one punch!

I finished the card with some Silver Mini Sequin Trim behind the quilted piece and Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon.

For the inside, I stamped some stitching from the Quilted Christmas stamp set, and the sentiment from Moon Baby. The sentiment is on a punched out circle only because I tried stamping straight on the cardstock without using my MISTI. *eye roll* Yeah, I will never learn my lesson.
